    I've rejected a placement in my local kinder, but have been offered a place at another kinder (forbes) I will accept as I rather him there then my local kinder.

    However....I have his name down at other places. As I was really hoping to get into one mostly, should I ring them on Monday and tell them to still keep me on the waiting list Incase a position does come vacant?

    Yeah definitely let them know you're still keen. Families can still move home or decide to hold their kid back.

    Which one did you say no to? Was it the centre who made an inappropriate comment?

    Definately keep him on the list. Is the kindy you rejected better then Forbes ?.

    Be watchful of Forbes though I know a few kids from different family that have pulled their kids from there as they weren't happy with it

    Why did they pull the child away?

    I will ring next week, I've heard Netley is good.
    Also put him down at glandore, kulluta park, warradale.
    Just around there.

    Any help would be good. Thank you

    They all where pulled for the same reasons. Didn't like the educators, kids being bullied and nothing being done about it.

    Warradale is good we have had kids we know go through there and at the school now that is joined to it. Haven't heard about your other choices.

    Ascot primary isn't great so be mindful of that if you where considering schooling.

    I would never go to ascot park primary. Thank you
    We will see how we go. I'm hoping I get into Netley, the photos look nice.

    Not smart enough, one child is obese naturally from birth and was picked on by a lot of kids for that, and one particular kid was just mean would hurt kids always get away with it and he still does while now at school. Teachers did nothing to correct the issues

    Oh ok, that's not good.

    I did ask someone yesterday (dropped off paperwork) and I said what do they learn here, and she said...
    Getting ready for school
    How to hold a pen
    The alphabet
    Free play

    Then told me kinder is in one room & preschool in another.

    I was like, my son knows how to hold a pen, alphabet & amongst other things. Then I questioned myself if I'm doing the right thing. But after she said about preschool and kinder being in another room I'm left thinking where will my son go. I'll find out tomorrow, but again, I will be calling the other kinder.
